that reminds me I have to go cut my red amaranth before I have thousands of them next year. Glad you started a new thread. Dried out enough here to have to water.

Thank You! I needed that! Still clearing tree limbs...

Oxdrift, Canada

Nice Amaranth Ju. Thanks for new thread as well.
Great to hear from you Kitt. No flood damages?? Clearing limbs is better than a soggy house. How did the moat work for the neighbour?

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

I was wondering that also , the water , the moat ,

Aster today ,

My asters haven't bloomed yet, do I need to fertilize?

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Gypsi Not at all Asters like early or even late season rain , They grow on wasteland places here ,
Resent fertilizer actually , makes their leaves yellow some most of the time A little compost once in a while is best ,
Somme of the White Roadside are getting their buds , Next few days aster blooms everywhere

The guy with the moat just cant win, but he wasnt alone. The rain alone filled the inside of the moat, the 2 small pumps couldnt handle the rain, and that was a day and a half before the creek rose. Enough rain I had a sweetgum tree bend in the middle, may be a sign of carpenter ants, dunno how they survive in the land of fire ants...another type of rain lily...

Beautiful pink lily Kitt. A little bit of brightness to follow the gloom!

Fort Worth, TX

Dragonfly is pretty too. So that is what obedient plant looks like Ju. In Texas it is disobedient, I think I have seen it take over a pond.

Oxdrift, Canada

Fall in Oxdrift
Brought in succulent cuttings on Friday. Coleus cuttings are rooting up good in water. Will probably pot those up at the end of the week.
Have 20 cups of corn cooling off on the deck all ready to put in freezer.

Hi Keith , Looks Gorgeous ,

Fort Worth, TX

Fall in Texas, I put my sprinkler system parts on the high shelf in the garage, didn't get it built, barely needed it this summer, which is very odd.

given up setting up new hives, will be merging small ones together, getting ready to treat for varroa mites. Planted broccoli, chard and jacob's cattle beans at the first week of August, Pruned tomatoes, some did come back and are putting on fruit. getting fish organized and trying to get trees pruned.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

That's right it really isn't october, why does it feel like it?

Staten Island, NY(Zone 6a)

Hello to my Texas buddy gardeners. Hope all is well and you all are safe .

Fort Worth, TX

we are. Kitt finally got internet and I only got 1.5 inches of rain

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

Nope, no internet. Think the rain damaged the wires to the house- my outside box doesn't show a connection. Still on data, will aggravate the dsl folks tomorro. First mowing since the rain- new sand in the yard, but St Augustine is handling well- found 2 new crayfish mounds in the yard, and I have been harrassing with poison the fire ants that think they will make area theirs...I still have ripe mustang grapes on the vines which dont help me fight those ants either.

Staten Island, NY(Zone 6a)

Keep the faith ,you have life and soon things will be back to normal. I am pray that everyone recoups,

Staten Island, NY(Zone 6a)

Today it's beautiful outside at 82F no humidity so I decided to divide some lilies.I plant 4 in my ront garden beds.These are there pictures.

Your stargazer looks amazing. How do you divide them?

Staten Island, NY(Zone 6a)

I use the pointed shovel and dug about 6 inch around then lift up the bulbs .Each of then had 2 nice size bulbs and I left the main plant with the bulb attached.So I had 4 New plants put in the garden bed.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Pretty flowers the lillies All usual here ,only browsing through ,

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

I totally agree, it has felt like October for a couple weeks at home and now, really feels like it up here.. brr! Love that pink rain lily, mine have not bloomed for a long time. Oh Kieth, you gardens are so beautiful, plz tell me it's not going to freeze already! Ju, so many wild flowers I saw on the way... wanted to stop every ten minutes, but hard to do on a toll road. all the wild flowers I planted up here are blooming in Mom's back yard, but I have to figure out a way to get these other danged weeds out for good! LOL

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Debra I will start Lupine and such as cool temps are the course , Hoping my seedlings get large enough Miracle gro being kept handy toads being chased to another place about the yard , ( they keep digging under my seedlings ,
The wildflower excursion viewing sounds entertaining ,,

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

I love your lillies, cytff.. Hey Kitt, what is a crayfish mound?
it is kinda chilly up here in New York!

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

I am hoping some more of my fall seedlings sprout
Echinacea sprout better in Garden soil
The Mallow I have been trying to grow ,I got cement dust from sweeping the sidewalk with grain wash sediment , Planted them in that and they sprouted right up , Some won't sprout unless the start earth is perfect (per say )


Staten Island, NY(Zone 6a)

Ju, so many bad seeds here are just waiting for their own day to sprout - sigh. Glad I don't have to mess with that.
Deb. Crayfish. To a cajun, they are etouffee, jambalaya, gumbo, Mardi Gras, and anything in between. To me, an Okie, they are crawdads and much smaller than the south grows them. That makes them fishfood for Oscars, and full grown Angelfish... destruction to lawnmowers, etc. One eye out for gators and raw bacon on a string in a ditch of rainwater teasing them out of their mud. The native Americans tell the story of the crawfish as building the earth. They swam down thru the waters and scooped up the mud on their tails, carrying it up until the ball of mud became the land. These two seperate mounds show the shape of the carried mud, but in dryer climates, this is the door to a deep hole with water that the mud bug lives in.

Kitt I remember when Crawdads use to do that here ,
Plated some more seeds ,

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

oh wow, thanks! I just learned something, and I'm glad.

Fort Worth, TX

I remember southern Illinois or Western Kentucky having crayfish I think, but I wasn't allowed to go foraging much after the snake incident (Black Racer chased my sister and I ALL the way home)

I am alive by the way. 12 hour job yesterday, it's a beauty

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Crayfish can taste like lobster or crab if it is cooked good , otherwise BARF , if it is not just right ,
I'm cutting flowers and weeds , Burning some of the burdock and QAL seed heads
Hummingbird told me to move over ,it wanted into the Obedient flowers
Looking like rain and about 70 degrees here with a good wind going
